I was reading Sara’s blog about getting on the bus and never being satisfied or rather that God is never satisfied where we are in our walk. She’s right, we get to a higher ground and we want to stay there. We worked pretty hard to get there (most of my work is done resisting change) and so we want to stop, smell the flowers for a minute. But then it’s time for a new adventure. To get to the “next” higher ground. Time for God to do a new work in us. Time for God to have us reach someone who needs Him. Time for God to teach us something, to bring US something that we need.
He’s never satisfied to where we’ve stopped.
And we shouldn’t be either. I don’t know about you, but I love to learn.
A new lesson, something like finances, or statistics, or work in the house. Or even how to cook something new. I love to find a scripture verse to fit my blog or a feeling I am having and google it and find a bible lesson someone already did to help me grow and expand my knowledge in the Lord. Sometimes I look back and think “I wish I would have had that then…” but alas, it was a lesson I wasn’t supposed to learn that way, but in retrospect, God gave me the scripture when I needed it. Because in the middle of the mess, it might not have meant as much to me at the time.
I was not so excited about the changes that are going on in my life (well, I was excited about the Metro thing) but not really all the other stuff.
I am hoping that these dizzy spells that I am having are just stress (and yes, I am going to the doctor)… You could pray though, that might help.
I am going to embrace all these changes. I am going to remember that I am EXACLTY where I am supposed to be, because that’s where God wants me to be, at His mercy, and in His love. It’s a new lesson…
1 John 2:5 But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:
2 John1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
